As you're aware, the Apache Software License 2.0 makes it more cumbersome to include/bundle software that is not ASL. Would you comment on the FOray 'license' and how it will be affected and/or interact with ASL?

No need to apologize, your input is welcome.

That goes double for me (if that's possible... :-))

concluded that there were an overwhelming number of good reasons for me to
import the entire FOP maintenance branch into the FOray repository, then
delete and modify as necessary for FOray integration. One of the biggest
benefits is that it will greatly simplify any integration that FOP decides
to do with Foray. Specifically, I don't have to be in the business of trying
to coordinate such integration, and you don't have to listen to me trying to
do that. Just come get it if you want it. The good news is that I will
essentially be doing the maintenance branch integration for you -- there
shouldn't be much to do except decide whether you want it or not. I have
posted greater detail here:
This approach allows FOray and FOP to ignore each other most of the time.
However, I obviously hope that you will check in from time to time to see
whether we have anything useful for you. Please let me know if I can help in
any way.

This approach makes a lot of sense.

I will probably unsubscribe fop-dev in the next few days, so if I don't
respond here, contact me off-line or through FOray.

I will check up on FOrays progress from time to time, to see if theres anything that we need to do.

As my company (and probably most others as well) is already using the FOP-maintain branch in production, it makes sense to check in from time to time, to see what FOray has cooking as well. In fact, once you get some usable enhancements from FOray, it might make sense for FOP to add FOray to the Resources Page (assuming there are no objections).

I wish you every success with FOray.


Ditto Chris's eloquence for me...
